6:15 pm
are you ready to du more with less asthma? just ask your asthma specialist about dupixent. big tobacco's cigarette butts filter practically nothing and are made of microplastic fibers that are toxic and cunning. they may seep into water and food, and air, too. and the smaller microplastics get, the more damage they do. could they end up in you, your bodies, their prey? new studies indicate possible links to mutations in dna. an evil lie with a future's worth of harm. to the world, now you know. so sound the alarm. for state controller, only yiu will save to the taxpayers wait, who, me? me? no, not you. yvonne yiu. yvonne yiu. not me. good choice. for 25 years, yiu worked as an executive at top financial firms. managed hundreds of audits. as mayor, she saved taxpayers over $55 million. finding waste. saving money. because... yiu is for you.
6:16 pm
yiu is for you. exactly. yvonne yiu. democrat for controller. >> the oakland police department is inching closer towards ending its federal oversight. a federal judge has now ruled that oakland come enter a one-year probationary period. >> the oversight was the result of a lawsuit in 2000 when 6 man in west oakland argued they were falsely
6:17 pm
arrested on drug charges and assaulted and framed by police. those officers were found not guilty, but the civil case led to a settlement. the settlement required oakland police department to complete 51 tasks as they put it to improve the way it trains and disciplines officers and 50 of the requirements have been completed. >> joining us now to explain what this all means is civil rights attorney john burris, who has been following this story for 22 years. john, thanks for your time tonight. should this be considered something of a victory for oakland to be entering? what we hope is this final stage. >> say so. you know, i've been involved in this case since 2000. and, you know, at the time we started this case and it activities taking place. we actually represented 119 people. i would become my buddy up being so during this period of time. also and they've been setbacks. we have reached a point where we think
6:18 pm
that 50 have the path have been completed. at least they've been a substantial compliant. that's a very positive statement. we haven't been that close before. and so this next phase of probation which we to a sustainability, part of what we always want to do, whatever we did, we want to make sure that was sustainable and that would last beyond the terms of the agreement. my point of view, it's important at last be on. and when you first and build up the senate bill deep, it is important. but my way of thinking all this were to happen under this down to the years. it really was about generational change is not and something did come to a lot progress has been made and that we've got is not over. it will always be problems in dealing with these going with people involved. but the issue is they have a system in place. hold officers accountable when they do step out of line and that the i've been finding does not turn a blind eye and allowed go
6:19 pm
families to prevent them from holding office accountable. if you do that, then i think you have changes that were last time indefinitely until forever. some of the issues out very concerning to question racial profiling. and that is after the man who will be in stop disproportionately on by police representative that gone down substantially. it's not totally done to my place but certainly significant changes have been made so that we know that the department noted is where bases outliers in terms of officers seem to be stopping at american without just cause that they would take appropriate action there are a lot of areas of the positive, very positive. we had this whole question about hand cupping, not how they were being treated and it's by the office in terms how they communicate aside from the force, the issues and we do go on to that were taking place and required lot of positive changes and that not and i said reminded me in franklin
6:20 pm
when he said constitution was signed, he says now we have a republic. the question is, can you keep? and that's important because not only have this agreement, can we keep and we all know than what you checked through. pretty adamant. but if you don't do it with one, you're going to continue. i mean, it definitely. and so there's that kind of backdrop that i think that should hold these officers and the department. it i'm thinking of fire and keep them working positive in this regard. we will stay involved but not on the same level we've been involved because is taking its toll. we've been involved with the prime will 20 years now and we'd like to not have me on a consistent basis around these cases by this particular case will say we would hope so. >> mister burr's just on the face of it died 20 years, something yes, we're talking about dozens of reforms, but i think a lot of people don't really understand why it has taken this long. >> well, tell you my way of thinking it took this long because there was not a commitment. comply and meet
6:21 pm
the terms we to well over 10 years with that constant meetings, how we're going to court trying to get the department to work through it and then have a was a commitment and seemingly from top to bottom part of that, we think that because miley options with and started the day, they were committed to the old way of doing policing and they were resistant to that change. you could even get caught stop car main tenant organize way. so part of that was in the resistance of the department and the officers, the people who ever wasn't readership position to make the kind of commitment was necessary. and plus, that would be different gamble that would occur from time to time. some of which, you know and heard about public scandal that also because it backs up, frankly, i think that kind of embarrassing to me have been involved in this case home 20 plus years. but at the same time has also committed to getting it done. and so is not completed yet. i think they
6:22 pm
got the kind of leadership and partly now along with commitments in the public officials to really hold this department commit them standing compliant and longtime no doubt about it. but that we want you hopefully that that they will get that his one-year probationary period sustainability period. and that would be put in place will be culturally part of how the department runs and will last a generation. if so, which is my hope. >> alright, civil rights attorney john burris, a a friend of kron four's. thank you for coming on tonight and sharing your expert insight on this topic. we appreciate your time. >> they thanks. mister burre in
